|Fern Point - Party Buttress
It is a flaring right facing corner that turns into a hand crack-layback. Two sectioned crack on quality rock. Bottom half stays dry after rain but top may not.
Try to onsight it, it'll be awesome.
right of "The Plug" and left of "Exoduster".
Top out and belay or traverse right to anchors of Eat My Dust. You can stop after the first section with an easy traverse to the shared anchors of The Plug and Pocket Pussy.
Take plenty of #2 and #3 cams.
Remember to protect your second.

Certainly a major sandbag at the new Cater guide's "5.9" rating.

The lower half of the route starts wide but shortly turns to perfect hands in a slightly overhanging small right facing corner. Once on the ledge don't set gear until you can out right in a horizontal a little further up. Layback up the awesome flake and set some larger cams (BD #3) about halfway up then fire for the top. Stellar route not to be missed.

The initial crack is pretty burly. Fun range of hand sizes down low and cool laybacking up top.

Book says "take enough #2's and #3's" for me that would have been 3 of each. Was wishing I had another #3 at the top.
